Have you been feeling fatigued for between 4-6 months or longer? And the
feeling of fatigue may be persistent or relapsing? You may also experience 4 or
more of the following symptoms for longer than 4-6 months:
Impaired short term memory or concentration
Sore throat, feverishness
Tender cervical or axillary lymph nodes
Multi-joint pain without arthritis
Headaches of a new type, pattern or severity
Unrefreshed sleep, difficult falling/staying asleep
Bowel changes, irritable bowel
Increase sensitivity to chemicals, perfumes, petrol
fumes, food allergens etc.
Nutritional deficiencies and imbalances
Biochemically, chronic fatigued patients have reduced cellular oxygen
uptake and increased oxidant stress. There is also a major drop in cellular
synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the most important energy carrier in
cells. This would explain the symptoms experienced.
Treatment for chronic fatigue involves a combination of herbal formulae,
acupuncture, stress management and nutrition supplement. The overall treatment
focuses on strengthening the immune function by improving colon flora,
digestion, reduction of oxidant stress, support the liver, support energy
production and treat any viruses or bacteria present.
